HAHA! I knew a guy whose's son was the leader of an army sniper platoon in Iraq. I was blown away by the stories of what these guns could do. This is a beast of a weapon and a pretty slick looking gun too.
Oh yeah, I've got some friends in the army. I guess a sniper with a barret loaded with explosive rounds is about the most feared thing there is. He can take out trucks, hard cover, soft targets, pretty much anything they've got. I could only imagine what the 20mm rifles can do [link]
haha! This thing dwarfs that gun! Apparently they would use depleted uranium rounds against soft targets. Basicly they wouldn't have to even hit the target. The vacuum behind the round was so large that is sucked eveything around it into it's path. So it pretty much turns you inside out... ouch
I can't even imagine the recoil. That round is usually used in tanks and aircraft, but with a 5000 yard range you could pretty much hit anything you could see but the sun. As for DU rounds on soft targets...ouch sounds about right
